The Road to Mecca


Based on the life and work of Helen Martins – South Africa’s foremost Outsider Artist. For over 20 years, reclusive Miss Helen created her own “Mecca” – a fascinating backyard world of sculpture and mosaics in a desolate region of Apartheid South Africa. The village Pastor who embodies the community’s conservative values is determined to move the elderly Miss Helen into an old age home. Miss Helen’s dearest friend Elsa is just as determined that she remain free. MECCA is a tribute to the bravery of the Artist and the significance of artistic freedom in an oppressed society.
